My guess is that you could use applescript to tell the system to set the
dock hiding to true.

If you don't need to see the iTunes library window then tell iTunes app to

IF you need to see iTunes library window but not the menu, you will likely
need to tell Rev to activate, hide menu, then the stack could go invisible
or off screen.

If you want to make it pretty, then tell iTunes to show the
visualizer(cmd-T) , full screen (cmd-F), which takes over the screen.. no
menu, no dock.
